Poteat Residence Hall’s namesake, William Louis Poteat, was an 1877 graduate of Wake Forest. President of the University from 1905-1927, he is best known for his defense of the teaching of evolution during a time when the topic was extremely controversial among scholars and theologians. Poteat houses Zick’s Pizza Parlor which functions as a hangout space for students. In both design and facilities, Poteat is similar to Kitchin Residence Hall and also houses continuing students.
